least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is newark mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip about this, but a lot of people have been getting

voted for barack obama is because of the color of his skin, that they're both black men. >> right. look, there's no wriggle room whatsoever. it's extremely offensive and this is the kind of just patent disrespect the president's had to endure a lot, to think that somebody with colin powell's depth of experience, with his wisdom and with his intellect is going to support somebody just because of the color of their skin is ridiculous, it's offensive and is in many ways just despicable but the reality is, what i feel very strongly about, is i would much rather look at just 11 days left in this election, and as much as i think mitt romney should distance himself from him, he should be very clear -- >> what should he do, mitt romney? people are saying you got to get after this guy, got to close this down, because otherwise you could have the last two weeks of the election campaign dominated by a race card, last thing they all want. >> right. again, i think mitt romney should be stepping up on this issue and frankly, what i'm even more shocked on is you have a united states senate candidate c

down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on this show live and exclusive to tell me why he feels so strongly why the president should leave the office. let's start with these long lines for gas. susan candiotti is at one gas station in new jersey. i have been following your travails for most of the day. you have been joining endless lines for gas in your car. most of the time coming up against a blank. where are you now and how does it all end? >> reporter: well, it all ended with us not getting any gas. it looks like a ghost town here. you can see they were open for a good nine hours. they had the supply but those lines just sucked it all up. too many customers and eventually they had to shut down tonight. so a lot of

tomorrow. jennifer granholm, this is the last one before the election. if this is good news for obama in any way, he would be already be riding on the back of momentum from his very presidential performance. if it's bad news, it could throw the debate right back to jobs and the economy which is mitt romney's strong point in this election as it runs to its conclusion. >> well, it doesn't seem that the news is going to be all that bad even if it is bad because the aap numbers indicated that there were more -- there was more hiring. obviously the trajectory has been good, both on the political side with the polls as well as on the economy. you have the stock market rebounding, you've got manufacturing now at a 15-year high. the numbers out of the manufacturing sector are very good. so much of that attributable to the saving of the auto industry. so i think the momentum clearly is on the president's side and i think a lot of the early voting numbers that we are seeing where the president has a huge advantage in many of these swing states, if not all of them, attributable again to his ground

? >> barack obama, and he's going to win it because of the last several days. let's put aside what's right or wrong or who is going to solve the problem of getting my power back, but he -- he was a remarkable moment in this campaign for barack obama to go to new jersey and to just suck christie's support. you could see it leave christie's body. >> were you surprised by the sheer scale of enthusiasm that christie showed? >> totally. it was two guys playing a very astute political game, and they both played it brilliantly and effectively, and i think -- i think barack obama is the deal. >> you have written a biography of rupert murdoch. didn't really like it very much. when you saw his tweet tonight about chris christie, bait of a warning, saying you better put up for mitt romney in the next few days, or if he loses, you will be the guy that gets the blame. if you're rupert murdoch, pretty ominous warnings to chris christie. >> except i know how dispeptic rupert has been for quite some time about mitt romney. so i think rupert is positioning himself too. rupert knows that mitt romney is goin

honor that. >> middle income families are being crushed. >> romney attacked. obama wilted. >> you've been president fourees. you said you'd cut the deficit in half. it's years later, we have trillion-dollar deficits. >> it was a romney turnaround recasting romney from the right to the middle during the next two debates. >> regulation is essential. you can't have a free market work if you don't have regulation. >> opening the door for the opposition to ask, who's the real romney? >> we've got to name this condition he's going through. i think -- i think it's called romneysia. >> people say you're secretive, out of touch, you play by a different set of rules. >> i know the obama campaign is going to do everything they can to try and deflect from the economic record of the president and his failure to come up with the plan to get the economy going in the future. >> no doubt romney is on message this time. he wants us to believe he can fix things like the economy and won't give up until he does. but that's the easy part of his story. the rest is harder to tell. he's a devout mormon who s

, watching it all, is that president obama gets a lot more air time as the incumbent president in a time of national disaster and he seems to have done a pretty good job. chris christie, mitt romney's right-hand buddy, has been out there today saying what a great job he's been doing. >> sure. >> that has to be good for him, doesn't it? >> well, we have to see how the cleanup goes and if obama makes a mistake later on. but i would agree usually in the short run a crisis environment tends to help the incumbent president. and the fact is we only have the short run now, so if there's fallout in the long term then it might occur after he were elected. i still think voters are mostly basing this on the economy. maybe you have 1% of voters who are out there undecided. so it's an interesting event, but look, if romney had it in the cards to win before i'm not sure it would shift things enough against him. >> and also it still comes down to swing states and in many of those what may be more important for candidates is the inability to get to places like ohio in the last few days. >> sure, romney

math and probability, and in politics, people tend toward one side is always right, or everything is 50/50, and the real exists on the margin. and i think obama has an edge in the polls in ohio. >> are you seeing any polls in the last 24 hours which suggest that the hurricane as a disaster, has had any impact yet? >> it's too early to say. a number of the more reputable pollsters suspended their polling. right now, i think we shouldn't make too much of noise. a lot of people are out of power, could have helpful effects, you can't reach people in new york city, for example, democrats and they wouldn't appear in the polls as much. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> up next, where the superstorm is heading next. a massive amount of snow in west virginia. a storm chaser joins us with the latest.
